I can't imagine fishing now without one.

bumblebee1976, Ebay
25 February 2012
  • Summary: This is my fourth one. I use mine for fishing. I vertical fish submerged structure. It works great once you get use to getting around in the menus. They don't last forever. I use mine probably 30 times a year, on all day fishing trips. They last about 2-3 years before the screen starts locking up. I have looked into having them refurbed by garmin, but haven't done it yet. I can't imagine fishing without one now.

Very good

JW "JW", Amazon
11 November 2011
  • Summary: If you want a unit that works well under the canopy and is easy on batteries, this is worth considering. It is water resistant, accurate and easy to use. Black and white display is not a problem, unless you are looking for full topo displays. I may get another as a spare.

Solid Unit with Great Battery Life

Mr Podman, Amazon
3 February 2011
  • Summary: My Garmin GPS 76 purchased in 2003 has always performed flawlessly. The simple gray scale screen yields longer battery life than more "modern" color screens. Garmin says this unit gets up to 16 hours use without a battery change. Compare that to taking your NUVI or TomTom out of your car's charger and using it. They'll give you about 2 hours. And the GPS 76 uses 2 AA batteries. Simple. No dedicated chargers required.

Garmin GPS 76 is perfect

M. F. Haines, Amazon
25 November 2009
  • Summary: Installed my Garmin GPS 76 on the console of my Whaler, and it works great. Easily programmed and logical ease of use. I especially like the renaming of waypoints, making it simple to find the fishing spot you want. Battery life is a major plus, as my old one (different mfr) just ate batteries.

Can't calibrate it!

Amazon
25 June 2002
  • Summary: It looks good and it is said that it does wonders, but I can't calibrate it. I have tried many times but it fails on me. And their tech support is hard to reach.

Great for PDA or PC connection

Corey Stephens, Amazon
22 April 2002
  • Summary: The GPS 76 is the perfect portable GPS unit for connecting to a PocketPC based PDA or a laptop. I have tested it on an iPAQ 3835 with Pocket Streets 2002 and it works like a champ. I have also tested it with a friend's PDA using Anywhere Map (a moving map/EFIS type program for flying) and it worked great. If you are in an area that can get WAAS reception, the accuracy is even better.

Great Handheld for the Price! Buy One!

"andrew862", Amazon
7 March 2002
  • Summary: Got this GPS for primarily geocaching...It works wonderfully! Best Unit I have owned yet... and I have owned quite a few. Garmin has done it again! If you plan to use it for driving get the MAP76.. but for navigation while hiking this one is everything you will ever need. Great Unit! Great Features and Great Price here at amazon...
